There’s no denying that this new festival fetish of mine is quite the expensive hobby. But what can I say? I’ll hostel hop for months and play the credit card points game all day if it means that once a year I can splurge on a magical experience like Tomorrowland.

While costs will of course vary wildly from person to person, I know that when I’m planning for a big expenditure like a major European music festival, I like to have at least an inkling of what’s coming.

So exactly how much does Tomorrowland cost? This post is my own personal euro for euro breakdown! I decided not to include flights into the total because first, Tomorrowlanders fly in from over 200 different countries, meaning that figure will be largely irrelevant, and second, I flew in from one European country and out to another and enjoyed a bit of Belgium along the way, as this was part of a much larger trip. However, here are some of my best tips for scoring great flight deals.

Tomorrowland

Essentials

Ticket: €237.50 or $300

Tickets are available in a few different packages. Day passes are 88/$111 each, while a Full Madness pass covering all three days of the festival is €237.50/$300. Comfort passes, which all access to seperate viewing decks, are 165/$208 per day or 437.5/$552 for the Full Madness comfort pass.

The week before the festival we panicked wondering if we should have splurged on comfort passes and tried fruitlessly to find a way to upgrade. In the end I’m so glad we didn’t bother — we never felt we were missing out.

Next up, read about how to get those damn tickets!

Tomorrowland 2014

DreamVille Camping: 525 or $661

This was, obviously, my biggest expense. We chose to splurge on camping in the Dream Lodges, and it was our best decision of the festival. The cost included four nights. Camping at the Dream Lodges was a such a big part of my enjoyment of Tomorrowland, I can’t imagine my experience had we done another direction.

Next up, read all about camping in Dreamville!

Dreamville Dream Lodges Tomorrowland

Ticket Fees: €56 or $70

When it was finally time to check out, there were surprise “service costs” of €8 per person, “payment costs” of  23 per person, and “fulfillment costs” of 25 per person. So in total we paid 56/$70 each in ticketing fees. While the “service costs” fee is clearly stated on the Tomorrowland website, the other two were not — build them into your budget.

Day-2_16

Tomorrowland Shuttle: €27 or $34

As Boom is not exactly a booming tourist destination the rest of the year, getting there is not so straightforward (see what I did there?). Taking the train from Brussels or Antwerp involves a transfer, though Tomorrowland does arrange free shuttles from the Boom train station to the festival grounds.

As Heather was flying in to Brussels late on Thursday and we were anxious to arrive to the festival as quickly as possible, I met her at the airport and we took Tomorrowland’s shuttle to the festival. The price was for a round trip ride to and from the airport.

Day-2_37

Day-2_39

Day-2_38

Supplies

Campsite Food and Alcohol: €48 or $60

I spent €48/$60 on food and alcohol to bring into DreamVille. While we didn’t plan to cook, a stash of apples, bananas, nuts and granola bars went a long way, and our array of booze and mixers was a much appreciated break from the overpriced drink stalls inside the festival. You can bring anything into DreamVille except glass, meaning all alcohol had to be transferred into plastic bottles ahead of time.

While we couldn’t get a clear answer on this leading up to the festival, there was drinkable water at the campsites. All water coming out of the sinks in the bathroom areas was clean and safe to drink, which saved us a ton on buying the bottled stuff.

However, any water or drinks you buy in the festival will be handed to you with the top off to encourage you to drink faster and thus consume more. I collected a few bottle caps in the days leading up to the festival and always had a few on me in my back pocket.

Day-3_35

Costumes: €75 or $95

Considering my hefty collection of costumes and dress up clothes, I didn’t have to add to much to prepare to go all out at Tomorrowland. Back in the US I spent $62 on a festival-ready backpack, a patriotic headband and flag top, and the obligatory flower crown. Unfortunately all those items, along with dozens of other beloved camping and costume items, are still missing thanks to the Belgian postal system.

Once I accepted my box wasn’t going to show I ran out and bought a pair of €8/$10 rain boots and 18/$23 worth of emergency accessories at Claire’s in Brussels. I ditched the rain boots but assuming (praying!) I get my box back, this whole category is an investment in future tomfoolery.

Day-3_19

On Site Purchases

Tokens: €165 or $208

When we purchased our tickets, Heather and I each bought a 50 Booze Bag containing 25 tokens and surmised it should last us most of the festival. Ha! It did not.

But at least you get value for what you are buying. Tomorrowland is known on the festival scene for its gourmet food and we were impressed by both the variety and quality. Each token had value of €2, and inside the festival mixed drinks cost 5 tokens, sodas and soft drinks cost 1.5 tokens, cheese toasties cost 2.5 tokens, and a meals like a pulled pork roll from the Texan BBQ stand or a noodle stir fry from the Asian booth cost 6-10 tokens. A great list of food and drink prices for 2014 can be found .

We ate breakfast in our tent each morning with the food we’d brought, and pre-gamed with our own booze in DreamVille before entering the festival at night. Otherwise I didn’t really make an effort to restrict myself in this area and happily indulged in overpriced strawberry mojitos and frozen yogurt galore.

Day-1_11

Splurges: €77 or $97

I had a few fun splurges along the way. I treated Heather and I to a bottle of champagne at the Bubbles with a View bar overlooking the main stage for 36/$45, I treated myself to a Tomorrowland t-shirt for 35/$44, and I made one trip to the oxygen bar for 6/$8. The t-shirt I could have lived without, in retrospect.

Day-2_23

Total Cost for four nights:
1,210 or $1,525 per person

While there are those who spent half what I did and those who spent triple (hello Global Journey guests!), I’m fairly certain Tomorrowland comprised the most expensive four days of my life. I knew they would be though, and I’m grateful for both the experience I had and the fact that I’m at a point in my life where I can make a massive annual splurge on something like this.

That said, I hesitated to post this breakdown. I had a few commenters that were shocked by what I spent on Burning Man last year, which was the same amount for more than twice the time. But alas, I’m owning this one — I had a killer time, and annoying mysterious fees and drunken t-shirt purchase aside, I don’t regret a single cent. [Update: Turns out Tomorrowland Brazil is even more expensive!]

Was that more or less than you expected? If you’ve been to Tomorrowland, please share your own experience in the comments below!

      Considering the amazing amount of pyrotechnics alone, I suddenly understood where the ticket costs came from. Heather and I kept saying, “this is like a million dollars in fireworks!” Ha.

      Same! For what it cost you overall, Meihoukai, I’m kind of surprised the tickets were less than 25%. Then again, all of the festivals I’ve ever attended like Bonnaroo don’t charge extra for the lodging, so I guess that’s what surprised me most about the cost breakdown.

      Also, $1500 still isn’t THAT bad for a “massive splurge”…maybe by travel blogger standards but not in the “real (non-blogger) world” =) I think you did great! Just think that you’d be spending that lump sum alone solely for rent if you still lived in NYC…

    I’m not surprised by the total at all, I blow through a decent chunk of change at festivals for only a few hours. They’re all expensive! I imagine a giant once-in-a-lifetime festival would be expensive, but that’s not really as bad as I would have thought! Looks like you had a blast too!!

    I am shocked (SHOCKED) that you bought a $45 bottle of champagne and a t-shirt…….. this doesn’t sound like you.

    me thinks there was a drink or 2 involved before you swiped for that champagne bottle, maybe?

    • Meihoukai
      October 8 2014

      The champagne was actually pre-purchased before I even stepped on the festival grounds! I was swept away by the promise of picture perfect mainstage views and full on bubbly baller status. (The t-shirt I was totally drunk for, though.)

    you know what? after 3 weeks in ibiza, i have no right to judge. NOT A SHRED OF ENTITLEMENT, I tell you! i paid $15 USD for a small bottle, i’m sorry THIMBLE, of water. when 3 of us grabbed coffee at a nice hotel, we nearly cried over the $42 USD bill. & the best one — a friend made the rookie mistake of ordering 2 double vodkas at a club…and left the bar $110 USD lighter!!

    when things are that expensive, you’ve just gotta laugh. and if you’re paying through the teeth for something, you damn well better not let stress or guilt hamper your enjoyment!

      Oh my lord, Ibiza is like the most expensive place on the planet. I’m sad to say that when I was there I let stress over money really overshadow my trip. These days, I’m with ya — just laugh. But at the time I was so… not broke, but so not earning literally any money that I just could not enjoy it. Didn’t make that mistake at Tomorrowland 🙂

    Ah Meihoukai thank you so much for all this tomorrowland info! It is one of my dreams and even though it is a splurge it’s great to have everything laid out there so nothing is a hidden cost. Then I know what cash I need and accept the cost before I go instead of being upset when you get there with costs you didn’t know about. It seems a pretty top notch festival in terms of facilities and organization and that’s always worth paying for – I LoVe dreamville too. Glamping for the win! Look forward to every last post you do on this gig!

      Yeah, this seems about average to me. I think a lot of attendees probably spent around this much but it was just allocated differently — being lightweight ladies I think we spent less on food and drinks than average and more on accommodation.

  • Maybe this series will persuade the next year’s festival to foot the bill for you! That would certainly make it all worthwhile! I bet lots of your readers are making plans for Tomorrowland 2015 🙂

    That seems about right. I mean, festivals are notoriously expensive. And considering you chose to upgrade to the Dreamville tent and indulge in a couple drunken purchases I’d say you didn’t do too badly! Plus, this is something you’ve dreamed of doing so the cost seems worth it to me 🙂 Kudos on bringing your own food and alcohol in. I’m sure that helped cut costs. Well played!

    I missed the music festival scene by about 20 years but me at your age wouldn’t have blinked twice at that cost. Looks like so much fun but I doubt a 40 something mom of two would fit in. I’d be at the O2 bar 24/7!

Festivals are getting so expensive- it totally sounds worth it though! Looking forward to your post about how to get the damn tickets-everything sells out so fast!

    Amazing post and pics !!! …

    Tomorrowland is on my bucket list and reading through your post gives me inspiration to make the trip from another part fo the world.

    I love your posts and I am going to save this one for the time I actually make it half way around the world!!

      Awesome Aashtee, that’s what I was hoping people would do with this post 🙂 Good luck finally getting to Tomorrowland!

    Hi Meihoukai,

    I love this fest….. May I know the total cost of Tomorrow Land 2015 incl. flight charges. I saw $1525, but still want to know about the flight…. Help me Meihoukai in this.

    • Meihoukai
      December 10 2014

      Hey Rubesh, the price of flights will vary wildly depending on where you are coming from 🙂 I always use kayak.com and skyscanner.com to check for great deals!

  • Syvelle Serra

    Oh god, I envy you so much for experiencing the grandest festival!!! It was very costly, I must say, but for a once in a lifetime opportunity to be at something like this.. raving, meeting other people from different corners of the world, with different languages you cant even speak, this is so fab! I promise myself I’d be experiencing something like this, too! I’d never ever have kids until I get to go in Tomorrowland! Haha!

    • Meihoukai
      December 29 2014

      Tomorrowland was an insanely fun experience I won’t be forgetting anytime soon — now that the sting of the price has faded, I only have the happy memories 🙂 Good luck getting there!

    Awesome post!! I have a question: is it possible to get your own camping tent and reduce the costs?

    • Meihoukai
      January 5 2015

      Absolutely, Gami! Though you won’t have access to all the facilities we had in the Dream Lodges, general camping is a much more budget friendly alternative. You can find out more in my post here! Hope that helps.

    Hi Meihoukai,

    Loved the detailing. I plan to go there in 2015.

    A quick question – The Dreamville package comes with a Tomorrowland pass or do we have to buy the pass separately ?

    Cheers,

    • Meihoukai
      January 8 2015

      Dreamville packages do come with a Tomorrowland pass. Good luck Saahil!

    Hey Meihoukai, I’m Hisham From Libya !!
    in my country we do not have a zip code or house address. So it’s impossible to receiving my bracelet from here..

    Q: Can I get my bracelet at entrance or help desk ?? please answer me asap !!

    • Meihoukai
      January 10 2015

      Hi Hisham! Unfortunately I am not sure about that. We had our bracelets shipped to my friend Heather’s parents’ house in the US since she lives in the Cayman Islands where there is also no home mail delivery. Maybe you can have yours shipped to a friend in another country? Sorry I can’t be of more help.

  • vinod
    January 11 2015

    Hey alex , thanks for sharing the info . It is really usefull . I have some quick questions .
    1) Is Dreamville acoomadation worth the money or going thru airbnb is a better option ?
    2) If we want to buy thru dreamville should we buy the tickets in the first phase along ie along with global gourney or can we buy with general sale ?

    Thanks in advance .

    • Meihoukai
      January 11 2015

      Hi Vinod, I didn’t speak to anyone who did an apartment rental so I can’t really weigh in on that option. However, I absolutely LOVED staying in Dreamville and thought it was worth every penny! And if you are doing Global Journey (from what I understand, as I did not do Global Journey) you will purchase your accommodation as part of that package, whether you choose Dreamville or a hotel. Best of luck!

  • Tanya
    January 13 2015

    are the dreamville lodges worth the extra?

    • Meihoukai
      January 15 2015

      Well, considering I called it my “best decision of the festival,” I’m going to go with yes 🙂 If you want to read more about the Dreamville Lodges you can read here. Good luck!

  • Jessica
    January 14 2015

    Hey Meihoukai,

    This is very helpful.

    Just one question:

    When purchasing the package for TL were you able to pay in installments or was it all upfront? I know for Brasil you are able to pay in installments so was hoping this was the case for Belgium.

    Thanks 🙂

    • Meihoukai
      January 15 2015

      As far as I know we were not able to pay in installments. Sorry!

  • Domonique

    Did you AND your friend have to pay 600 to stay in one tent? Or was the whole tent 600

  • Dhillon
    February 6 2015

    What an amazing post! May I ask you, If i were to just get a day pass of Tomorrowland(not planning on staying), do i still need to purchase a Dreamville ticket?

    • Meihoukai
      February 6 2015

      Nope! Plenty of people attend Tomorrowland and don’t camp in Dreamville. Enjoy!

  • AJ
    February 8 2015

    Hey Meihoukai,

    Do you know if the shuttle you took from the airport is the same one that Global Journey tickets holders take? I’m just wondering how the experience was and whether or not they permitted alcohol on board/stopped for bathroom breaks. Me and a friend just bought the GJ flight package with comfort passes from Canada. Can’t wait!

    And thanks for the great info!

    • Meihoukai
      February 9 2015

      Hey AJ, nope, these are separate from the Global Journey shuttles, though they appeared to be the same buses — we just waited in different lines 🙂 We had alcohol on board that we were bringing into the camping but we didn’t try to drink on the bus so not sure about that. No bathroom breaks but it is a pretty short trip from the airport to the campsite. Hope that helps!

    • Amanda
      August 28 2016

      Hi AJ,

      I am trying to find out information about GJ from Canada as I would like to attend 2017! Can you please let me know any tips/tricks recommendations you would have? I was trying to figure out if it would be cheaper to book my own flight then do a GJ from a closer location? Let me know!

  • Gami
    February 12 2015

    Hiii!!
    Awesome blog!! I have a question: how much cost the locker? I have noticed that it isn’t written.
    Thanks in advance 🙂

    • Meihoukai
      February 12 2015

      Hey Gami, as we had lockboxes in our Dreamlodge, we did not use lockers — so I’m not sure about the cost. Sorry I can’t be more helpful!

  • Daniel
    February 16 2015

    Hey Meihoukai,

    you said u brought ur own booze and mixers to the camping site. Is there a possibility to cool down your drinks or did u drink warm drinks during the festival?

    • Meihoukai
      February 16 2015

      A few times we were able to ask for ice and got it from the bar staff. Unfortunately they do not sell it anywhere in Dreamville or Tomorrowland — a huge mistake I think! Our tent neighbors went into town to try to buy some too and came up empty.

      • Daniel
        February 16 2015

        Hey thx for your answer. How far is it from dreamville to town? If Ur neighbours wenn to town to buy ice, isnt it possible to buy Drinks there everyday?

        • Meihoukai
          February 17 2015

          I suppose you could, but why not buy from Brussels and bring with you? There is sure to be more supply and cheaper prices, and you won’t have to leave the grounds to make the walk (believe me, you won’t want to once you are there :))

          • Daniel
            February 18 2015

            Thank you very much for the information! im so excited, can’t wait for tomorrowland anymore 😉

  • Thomas
    February 16 2015

    Hi Meihoukai,

    is it not possible to go to a supermarket in the city of boom? this year will be my first time at tomorrowland and on google maps it looks kinda close. But noone ever mentioned this and thats why i wanted to ask you if u know the distance from dreamville to the next supermarket.

    Greeting,
    Thomas

    • Meihoukai
      February 16 2015

      Hey Thomas, we did not go, but our tent neighbors did — they bought mixers and juice and such but sadly they did not sell ice! We brought lots of snacks in from Brussels though.

  • Henrique Romani
    February 18 2015

    Hi Meihoukai!
    I’m from Brazil, and me and my friend are crazy have a Tomorrowland experience. The tickets are in the most sold out right? I’ve found some tickets but the cost is kind of twice of the original price. Is there any way to get tickets with the original price? Or if You know a person who wants to sell passes, I’m crazy for that. Thank You

    • Meihoukai
      February 24 2015

      Hey Henrique, please be careful buying tickets second hand, especially over Facebook! (I removed your profile URL from your comment for your privacy.) Viagogo seems to be the best bet but I have heard negative stories about them as well. Again, just be careful!

  • Ethan
    March 27 2015

    Hey Meihoukai! Sounds you like had one big time!
    Also, I must say that you’ve no idea what impact your writing has on me right now.. I’ve already told myself that I have to attend TL once in my lifetime no matter what.
    Okay, what I’m about to ask might sound inappropriate.. But I’ve no idea of where else I might have to ask to get the right info.. During your time of stay in dreamville, was there a restriction on usage of any controlled substance? Like green. If you know what I’m saying.
    I’m going to be flying a long way, and it’s impossible to take the stuff along.. I’d like to know if there’s access to it in there? Thank you so much in advance.

    • Meihoukai
      March 27 2015

      Hey Ethan! Glad Tomorrowland has made it onto your bucket list! The festival grounds themselves are fairly strictly controlled. There are amnesty bins, drug sniffing dogs, security checkpoints, and major no-drugs signage. The campgrounds are much more laid back. I’m not a smoker so I wasn’t seeking it out and can’t comment on availability, but I don’t think using would be a problem — at least in our area the security team was laid back and friendly with us, there to make sure we had a good time and not enforce restrictive rules. From what I observed, party drugs like MDMA were pretty widely available. Have fun and stay safe!

  • Rachel
    April 5 2015

    I’m also from New York and I was planning on going to Tomorrowland in a year or two so I was wondering how much you paid for plane tickets and also how much the dream lodge costs for the 4 nights. Are ticket prices included in the price of the dream lodge or is that extra?

    • Meihoukai
      April 6 2015

      Hey Rachel, I actually flew from New York to London one way for about $400 then flew London to Malta and then Malta to Brussels, and then Brussels to Athens 🙂 Because I didn’t do a traditional round trip flight to and from New York, I didn’t include it in this calculation. The rest of the figures you ask for are outlined clearly in this post. Good luck!

  • Maris

    Meihoukai! Thank you so much for your post, I was really stressed about how much I’m going to spend during this days. When you mentioned Global Journey yep! Right here, I’m going from Mexico and I already payed the flights and the camping…But i was wondering how much money should I need for food and well.. souvenirs and stuff… Loved your advise! 🙂

    • Meihoukai

    • Meihoukai
      May 26 2015

      Hi Sagur! I’m not exactly sure what you’re asking. Are you asking if there are special Tomorrowland themed flights from India or not? To be honest, I’m not sure — I’d check their website for more details!

  • Avalon
    May 26 2015

    Hi Meihoukai!
    First of all, I love your blog! =D
    I just read all your articles about TL, and I must say I am so excited to get there!
    I am living in Belgium, and I have been trying for 4 years straight to get tickets. And I finally succeeded this year =D *happy dance*
    But I am a little disappointed that the fiancé did not want to splurge on the glamping option. I HATE camping (and that was the only option left..). So I am thinking that I might try 1 night, and go back and forth with my car between Boom and Brussels (where I love), just for a hot shower and a real bed =D
    But I’ll keep all your recommendations close when I’ll get there!
    Thank you for your article!

    • Meihoukai
      May 28 2015

      I don’t blame ya… glamping was the way to go 🙂 I’m sure no matter where you stay, you’ll have a great time!

  • Vivek Sharma
    May 27 2015

    Hey Meihoukai, I loved your blog. With the details you’ve shared, it doesn’t get better than this.
    I, my wife and a couple of friends are going this July, so just have a couple of questions:
    1. Since you mentioned that stores would run out of supplies in Boom, should I prefer buying supplies for Dreamville from Brussels and then come over to Boom?
    2. Approximately how far is Dreamville camping area from the festival area?
    3. I have opted for Easytent at Dreamville. WOuld I still be required to pay the ‘Random’ fee you mentioned?
    4. Did the amount (Euros 165) you mentioned for buying tokens sufficiently cover the food and drinks for all 3 days within the festival? Of course, you had booze and some supplied in your camp as well.

    Looking forward to your reply. At your convinience please 🙂

    Cheers!

    • Meihoukai
      May 28 2015

      Hey Vivek! Enjoy Tomorrowland! To answer your questions…

      1. Yes, that’s what I would recommend.
      2. Depends on where you are camping. Dream Lodges and Relax Rooms were the closest, under a ten minute walk. Easy Tents a little over ten. Standard camping, anywhere from fifteen to thirty.
      3. Those fees were mysteriously added when we paid for our tickets and camping. Look closely at your receipt — you probably paid for them too.
      4. Yes, we had booze and snacks in our camp. I spent 165 euros, which sufficiently covered me — how much you spend will of course depend on how much you like to eat and drink.

    Hey!

    I would just like to say…thankyou! Like you have mentioned before, trying to find out any detailed information or reviews on Tomorrowland and the experience in detail is ‘pull-your-hair-out’ frustratingly difficult! This is just what i’ve been looking for.

    Me and a friend are going this year 2015, we booked Global Journey from London (no reviews I can find sadly) but we are in Dreamville in the Dreamlodges and we are sooo excited.

    PS about the money – it is expensive but in my opinion you can see why and any festival goer knows you can’t put a price on such experiences! Our trip so far has cost £1200 for everything not including spending money when we get there…but I don’t care I will probably never get to do it again so i’m splurging away!

    Not long to go now!

    • Meihoukai

    Im trying to save up for next years tomorrowland and i was wondering how much the plane ticket was or if you did the global journey package was the cost included with the dreamland cost?

    • Meihoukai
      June 28 2015

      Hey Emery, the plane ticket price will of course vary based on your destination. I recommend using a search engine like Kayak or Skyscanner to estimate what you’d pay for a flight to Brussels. Best of luck!

    • Meihoukai
      July 20 2015

      Hey Yossi, when you say “what to watch,” do you mean what sets to see? I’m not sure who is on the lineup this year, but the Tomorrowland app is really handy for downloading and sorting the lineup by stage, time, artists, etc. As for what to wear, my best advice is to check out all four of my Tomorrowland posts and check out what people are wearing in the photos. We had an array of costumes and some bright and breezy festival wear. Best of luck!

  • Rohan
    July 25 2015

    Loved reading all your tomorrowland stuff

    Just on the tokens can they be used anywhere or just food and drink
    And what places can you still use your card
    What happens if you have leftover tokens (I’d keep one for a keepsake)

    • Meihoukai
      July 26 2015

      I’m pretty sure they are just food and drink. When we bought t-shirts we paid with credit card. I had a few leftover tokens and yes I kept them for a souvenir. Hope that helps! 🙂

  • aislinn connolly
    July 25 2015

    I just want to know when you buy your madness ticket does it go straight to ask what kind of camping you want? And can you buy 2 tickets at a time so you know your friend is gonna be in the same canopie.

    • Meihoukai
      July 26 2015

      The Dreamville packages include two tickets. You actually cannot buy one for just one person! Hope that helps, I know the system is a little confusing.

  • Brian C
    July 26 2015

    First time stumbling on this review and your other “Dreaming of Dreamville” Planning on a trip with my girlfriend maybe 2016 or 2017 Tomorrowland, Thank you for this. It may have been asked in the comments already but couldn’t find it (sorry if I am asking again) but your total cost I will assume is per person not for you and your friend you went with? I’ve heard of tomorrowland years ago and always wanted to go. I think I may just pull the trigger this coming up year or next and charge it with my reward point. It’s either that or taking my girlfriend first time to Disneyworld.

    • Meihoukai
      July 27 2015

    Hi Meihoukai.

    Thank you for all the info on you blog, its very appreciated. 😀

    You and others talk about bringing food into DreamVille. Is this completely allowed, of did you have sto sneak it in?

    Do they search bags or not?

    I also loved your suggestion about the bottle heads, ill be sure to bring them! ^^

    Thx again,
    Youtar

    • Meihoukai

      It is totally allowed, as long as it’s not in glass containers. They can search your bags looking for glass. Enjoy!

  • Kaitlyn
    September 10 2015

    Meihoukai, hello I have a few questions for this magical experience. I’m 18 years old, I plan on going to Tomorrowland within the next year.

    Can you stay in a hotel close to Tomorrowland or do you have to purchase the whole camping?

    How much is a tomorrowland ticket itself?

    I happen to know someone who lives in Belgium which I would stay there and just having to pay for the ticket itself and plane ticket which I know would be so much cheaper. My dads girlfriend actually can get like a low rate to any country.. Not sure how lol but I was just wondering if it’s allowed to stay at a hotel or wherever else

    Thanks,
    Kaitlyn

    • Meihoukai
      September 10 2015

      You can indeed stay in a hotel and purchase the Tomorrowland ticket separately. Many people chose to stay in hotels or elsewhere. Enjoy!

  • Lindsey

    Is the camping price per person or was that total?

    1500$… man that sounds scary lol
    I know it’s worth it right? It’s my dream to go there since I discovered this festival.
    I’m saving money for the 2016 edition, hope I can make it.
    Though, 1500$ is way out of my league (If I may say…), I’m planing on spending around 600€ (that’s like 700$ or something) MAX. What do you think guys? Is it enough at least to have fun and the best 3 days of my life?!
    Thank you!!

    • Meihoukai
      October 13 2015

      Depends on where you’re coming from and where you’re staying. At that price you’d definitely be in the general camping. I know plenty of people who’ve had a blast back there!

    Nice blog!
    What were your thoughts of the General camping area, vs the dream lodge tents? I would be a bit concerned about valuables and random people snooping around my tent… How much could you fit into the lockers?
    Oh and also what would happen if you refuse to pay those crazy random fees?
    Thanks! I can’t wait to go!
    Carlos

    • Meihoukai
      November 25 2015

      Hey Carlos, you can’t refuse the fees — they are added into the ticket price at checkout. I mention them so that others aren’t surprised when their final checkout price is different than the one they’ve been seeing listed elsewhere. I was in the dream lodge tents — check out the posts I linked to in the camping section for a full review.

  • Kristof Verboven
    November 25 2015

    I was scrolling trough the comments and noticed a lot of questions on the handling fees. They are standard in belgium, ticket sale is handeled by a 3rd party, and that’s why there are handling fees. Btw, to all the people wanting to know pricing etc for 2016: check the website early january, thats when more info is released.

    Greetings from Belgium

      Indeed — they are pretty standard in the US as well, clearly I just didn’t do a very good job explaining them 🙂 I do wish they were clearly outlined before you got to the final checkout page, though.

      Hey Niks, I’d love to help but I’m not sure exactly what you’re asking. Are you looking for photography tips?

    Well, I think that 1,200€ is not so much for this festival, I hope that in 2016 to be there, so thanks for information.

      Hey Xiomi, check my other Tomorrowland post — I have loads of information on getting tickets in them. Best of luck!

    Okay so my questions are for an American Male wanting to go in 2017:

    What’s the difference between the lodges and the dream vile camping? I thought you only needed the camping pass.

    Also – how much was the flight over?

    • Meihoukai
      April 26 2016

      Hey Jordan — there are several different camping options, some of which are luxury ones where the tent is provided and others which are basic and you bring your own tent. I suggest you consult the Tomorrowland website for more details — I explained it the best I could in this post 🙂 I spent an entire summer in Europe and then onward to Asia so I did not fly in directly to and from Belgium from the USA. A quick flight search will give you much more info on that than what I spent on my many one way flights a few years ago!

    Hey I am going to tomorrowland in 21 days and I am curious how many ‘pearls’ you think that I might need to purchase for the festival… This is the new cashless currency and you put it on the bracelet.. Anyway, 65 pearls is equal to 100 euros or 113 us dollars. I have 440 pearls or roughly 800 dollars on my bracelet. Do you think that is enough to bring? All Pearls unused are valid for refund. Thank you I am more than excited to go!!!

    • Meihoukai
      July 7 2016

      Hey Jeffrey! The only guide I can give you is the information included in the post above on what I spent on tokens, which was $208. That was enough for me, but if you are a heavy drinker or don’t bring any food or alcohol to the campsite you may find otherwise. Have a blast!

  • Jeffrey
    July 10 2016

    Thank you so much!! I am more than excited, I take it you are not going this year??

    • Meihoukai

      Nope, not this year 🙂 I have my eyes on a few other festivals though — and I’ll be covering The Brazilian version of Tomorrowland soon, so stay tuned!

    I went to Europe during the recession in North America and had found good paying job in the fashion business in London. After 4 years, I came home with $250 but money was well spent at parties, booze, music, girls, sex and explore the world and the human race, I had lived four years in paradise. You only live twice.

    Hey, I just came across as I was looking back at tomorrowland photos of this year. I just went to the festival this year and I am interested at your cost break down. We did the global journey package staying at a 4.5 star hotel in Brussels and had flights from Barcelona and ours cost $1350 USD each. Is the special camping in dreamville more expensive than hotel costs? It was by far the best thing we’ve ever done!! No words can explain!

    • Meihoukai
      July 29 2016

      I didn’t price out hotels because I always knew I wanted to stay in Dreamville but it may indeed be cheaper. I loved staying onsite so much though I wouldn’t have traded it for anything!

  • Emily
    July 29 2016

    Although I didn’t add in the extras we put on our wristbands which was an extra $200 over the 3 days!

      Yes, loving the new wristband system. Just used it for Tomorrowland Brazil! Posts about that coming soon.

      Hey Jose! There were plenty of couples, plenty of singles, plenty of groups of friends having fun. You’ll have a great time.

    Hi Meihoukai, thank you for sharing this with us! I want to do Tommorrowland in 2017 and stay in a dream lodge. Did you have to pay for the ticket and dreamlodge all at once? Are they separate? If so is it best to get the tickets first?
    Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
    Thanks

      Hi Natalie, you’ll book them at the same time if you are lucky enough to get into the purchase page! Check this post for more info on securing tickets. Best of luck!

    Thanks Harry

      Hey Harry, you’ll have to check the Tomorrowland website for current pricing. This post details what I paid to attend in 2014. Good luck!

    You have no idea how much your blog has been preparing for me and my boyfriend’s trip to Tomorrowland this year! We want to end our festival life with a bang before we settle down, buy house, ect… I have literally read every words of you blogs 30 times. I am just trying to see our best option for traveling right now, when I look up flights from Miami we are looking at about $1,350 per ticket. Thank you so much for all the great information, you are truly amazing. 🙂

    • Meihoukai

    hi i just came across your blog, myself and two friends are planning to go to tomorrow land this summer and i was wondering if we got one two person easy tent and then bought a pass to get into dream land would we all be able to sleep in the tent ? or this there only certain times your aloud in dream land with the pass?

    • Meihoukai
      January 15 2017

      Hey Katie, unfortunately no you won’t all be able to share it. To my understanding the Easy Tent tickets come with special wristbands and only those wearing them can access the area. Of course you might be able to switch off wristbands if you wanted to sleep at different times but I can’t imagine that would be ideal. Good luck!

  • Lauren

    This blog was so helpful!
    Is the price you listed the same for all countries?
    Also, do you have any tips on the best way to ensure tickets to the festival?
    Its been mine and my friends dream to go to Tomorrowland for so long and we finally have the bank to do it 🙂

    • Meihoukai

      Hey Lauren! I have tips on how to get tickets in this post. Hope it helps! Yes, the price of the festival is the same unless you qualify for the special Belgian resident prices.

    If my friends and I buy multiple spectacular easy tent packages, how do we make sure our tents will be together? Is it assigned after purchase or first come first serve when you check in?

    • Meihoukai
      June 27 2017

      Hey Kate! If they are like the Dream Lodges, which I assume they are, then they are assigned as you check in. They just fill them out from front to back (you don’t get to choose.)

    Hi
    Need some help
    Am going to tomorrowland this year yeyy!!

    Need answers to a few questions please

    The supermarket they have do I pay cash or on my card ?

    Is their at ATM ?

    AM from England
    Do I bring pounds and euros whatever I have on my bracelet?

    I understand the festival is cashless ? Bt will I need cash for shops ect ?

    • Meihoukai
      July 6 2017

      Hey Tash! I haven’t been to Tomorrowland Belgium since they went cashless but I assume it’s like Brazil, and yes, there is an ATM where you can get cash and use either that or a card to refill your bracelet. I didn’t bring any cash into the festival, just used my cards. I think the only thing we needed cash for was the oxygen bar in Dreamville. Enjoy!

    Thank you for breaking it down! My range of what I thought it be was roughly $2000 just for being there not including the airfare and transportation fees. Looking at going next year and planning ot out woth a couple friends here in the U.S. Tomorrowland is on my bucket list of places I will get to visit and experience.
